Robert Sarver isn’t selling Suns because of cancel culture
Why do rich people want to own NBA teams in the first place? Maybe the answer is obvious to you; in my experience, when people say they want wealth, what they really want is to be above reproach. They would love nothing more than to have direct power over another person and for that person to be in a compromising position for as long as possible. They want to walk into a nightclub and offer the manager an unholy amount of money for a private table and a bottle service girl. They want to buy the thing that’s not for sale. These are the people who love the idea that everything has a price, be it women, experiences, or in specific cases, the ability to subjugate the biggest, strongest and most handsome men in the world.
Enter Robert Sarver.
